A Fiesta with free Margaritas and Pina Coladas!

This past weekend, we had our first-ever booth at a local fiber festival called Fiber Christmas. By random luck, I happened to be meeting with our Fiesta Yarns rep a few weeks ago...I mentioned Fiber Christmas...and Brad (our rep, who also happens to be a native of Tulsa) generously offered to send us some hand-dyed yarn from Fiesta's outlet in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

We received two huge boxes of the most gorgeous yarns...far too much to sell at Fiber Christmas. So we decided to hang onto the yarn another week, to give all of you a chance at it before it makes its way back into the mountains of New Mexico. The yarns were offered to us at 25-50% off and we are passing all of the savings on to you!

(Hint: This would make a great gift for any knitter that you know, 'cause you know she doesn't already have it.)

Some of these yarns have been discontinued and even I have never seen them before. There are Zuni and Zia, each 100% cotton - one smooth, one bouclé (there are lots more colors you can't see around the back):

Here is Tenero, a 100% cashmere hand-dyed bouclé - so unusual, so soft and half-price!

Here is Starburst Rayon Bouclé, which was really catching everyone's eye when I was putting it out yesterday. Would be so pretty for a summer shawl or stole, either by itself or mixed with other yarns:

And we even got some La Boheme, Fiesta's #1-selling yarn, in colors either discontinued or slightly off from their normal dyes:

We would really like to sell all of this yarn this week, so we don't have to re-pack it and send it back (we're lazy like that ;-). So we are offering this added incentive. With any Fiesta purchase now through Sunday 8/2, we'll give you two skeins of your choice from the new shipment of Plymouth Margarita and Pina Colada that we just received.

Two skeins of either "libation" yarn will make a quick, pretty scarf on a #11 needle - either knit all rows, or do a drop-stitch (we can show you how). Fun and easy poolside knitting!

Come have a Fiesta with us this week, before the party's over Sunday!
